Hello everyone,The D5100 has finally came into my price range and I am considering buying it. I want to primarily use it for macro photography like this:http://windows.microsoft.com/is-IS/windows/downloads/mike-swanson-nature-themeI don't really know that much about photography and this would be my first non-point-and-shoot camera. I just need to know what good macro lenses there are under 300 dollars or so. I have tried doing some research on my own but there are a lot of terms that I don't...

Because of my limited budget and my special needs considering the camera i'm having troubles picking the right one.My first choice was canon sx50hs, but couple of my friends are talking me out of it, saying that i should, for that amount of money, buy a dslr camera.i'm thinking that i won't, in the close future, be able to afford any additional equipment like lens...

First post, pardon any infractions.Moving up from P&S cameras here. Have a growing toddler and want to catch some memories. Additionally, would take some photos & video for his pre-school (non paid).I've been doing research for about a month, and have spent many hours pouring through forums. Have visited and held and played with Canon, Nikon and Sony. The ergonomics, size and style are secondary to me for my basic photo needs. Function or form for me. I want great quality results. Yes, I know...

Hello all,I have a Nikon D5100 I use for fun photography, but I really need to upgrade my point and shoot. The current one I used is 6+ years old, and though its served me well- the video and picture qualtiy is disturbingly disgusting. The wife and I tend to share the DSLR when out and about, but I'm needing a point and shoot for more of my adventures. I'm leary of using it to take video just because of its cost, and I really purchased it for my wife even tho I use it more than she. 'I like...

Hello,My daughter wants, as a gift for her birthday, an entry-level DSLR camera. She had one point and shoot camera until now.She's very decided for a Nikon D3100 (one of her friends has one so... that's the story).However, since I checked a little the various digital photography forums and reviews, I thought to buy something a little bit better.Now, I read a lot about these 2 cameras: 550D and D5100. As far as I seen they are very close in terms of image quality, ease of use, lenses, etc.I...

Looking for a recommendation for the right speedlight based on the following conditions:1) I currently have a D5100 but expect to be upgrading to an FX camera or maybe some future next generation D7000 level camera.2) I shoot a mostly landscapes and buildings.3) I shoot mostly wide angle (as wide as 10mm). I also do flowers, birds and 90mm Macro.4) Currently looking at the SB-700 and SB-910. ----------My Flickr page: http://www.rhmimages.com

Hello All,I will be buying my first DSLR nest week, and I decided to go with  the Nikon D3100 plus the 18-55mm kit lens, 55-200 and the 35mm 1.8 or the D5100 but with just 2 lenses, the  kit lense and either the 35mm 1.8 or the 55-200.I am limited by my budget, so I want to check with you guys if the difference in money between both bodies is worth having to let one of the lenses go if I pick the D5100.So the options are:D3100+18-55mm+55-200mm+35mm 1.8D5100+18-55mm+55-200mm or 35mm 1.8Please...
